Introduction "Espionage," former CIA Director Allen Dulles once remarked, "is not a game for archbishops." Just so. The game of intelligence—to use the modern polite euphemism for spying—has been called "the world's second oldest profession," and it has much of the same tawdry reputation as its two historical contempories. According to historians, espionage was one of three primordial professions that emerged at the beginning of the human experience on this planet: shaman, harlot, and spy. Shamans ultimately became politicians and lawyers, while spies and harlots evolved into . . . well, spies and harlots. It is a matter of opinion which profession has acquired the most odious reputation. There is no dispute, however, about which profession has the most ambiguous reputation. Spies are alternately reviled and honored, rewarded and ignored, praised and disowned. This is largely a matter of perspective. Nathan Hale, the American spy during the Revolutionary War, is honored by his countrymen for his famous statement ("I regret that I have but one life to give to my country") upon the occasion of his execution by the British. But the British view of Hale is very different, understandably considering the number of British soldiers who died as a result of the intelligence he provided to General Washington. Similarly, the great Soviet spy Richard Sorge was posthumously honored by a commemorative postage stamp issued by Moscow some 25 years after his execution by the Japanese. But Germany will never proffer such an honor, for thousands of its young men died in the snows around Moscow in the winter of 1941 at the hands of Siberian troops shifted west to defeat the German onslaught against Moscow—a deployment that took place after Sorge found out the Japanese had decided not to invade the Soviet Union. Even today, in a time of vast national espionage establishments that has made the business of spying institutionalized.
